Parents: Your child is learning about digital citizenship in class this year. This includes topics like online safety, cyberbullying, and responsible use of technology. 

It's important to reinforce those lessons at home too. Have you ever wondered if it's safe to post pictures of your child online? Or how much time your child should spend playing video games or watching TV? Do you know what to do if your child is bullied online? How old should your child be before you allow them to use social media? Common Sense Media addresses these questions and more on the Parent Concerns section of their website.

Common Sense Media has online resources for parents too, for everything from picking a movie to choosing educational apps, to answering questions you may ask about technology. Bookmark this page and make it your go-to site for technology parenting resources. A permanent link is also available on the school homepage under For Parents. Educate yourself and be confident that you're making wise technology choices for your children!
